Thank you for your interest in The Regis School. Employment at Regis is more than a job. It is an opportunity to join a community of learners who seek challenge, commitment, and strong relationships with all members of our school community. Because we are a small, young, and growing independent Catholic school, much is required of our administrators, faculty, and staff. In return, Regis strives to provide competitive salaries, benefits, and opportunities for growth. All members of the community are encouraged to participate in the life of the school and to continue their professional development. Our faculty must be dedicated to the vision that they will be life-long reflective and creative practitioners.
